Five Simple Things (February 7)


This week was a bit better than last week, less rain, and that's always a plus during the winter months. I went for a consultation for an upcoming surgery I have in March, and it went well. (More on this later). Other than that, we are looking forward to spring coming and hopefully this Coronavirus pandemic doesn't get any worse than it already is. The stories of some of the countries is just awful. They claim it's similar to the flu, but on a more worse scale of sickness, and breathing issues along with the illness. I can't imagine. I hope things don't get worse here in the United States. But, for now, here are five things that brought a bit of simplicity to my week.

1. This Sunset.

On a day trip back from Timberline Lodge, I quickly snapped this sunset picture. It's not the best, but it's worth sharing and was beautiful to see. "Pink sky at night, sailors' delight."

2. These Running Days.

Been knocking out some miles running, slowly. I'm mostly trying to build my body up for my upcoming surgery. I'd like to drop a few more pounds in order to be able to bounce back better. Over the past two years I've lost a total of 68 pounds. This coming surgery is the last step in my journey to help my body as I age. I will be doing a blog post on this as soon as I am fully recovered and feel comfortable about sharing my progress. But, for now, I will say, the running and miles I'm logging, are a great start.

3. Another Selfie. 

Getting a bit more comfortable with it. Still on the fence, but according to Jeff, and Skylar, I should share more of my face. For now, I am okay with it, but I reserve the right to change my mind.☻

4. This Santa.

Was trying to sell this Santa Clause since Christmas on Craigslist, but no one liked the $75 price tag. I have since pulled the ad and will hang onto him for a bit longer. Eleven seems to like him, though.

5. This Star.

We don't eat fast food much, but I just had to stop and take a picture of this tree "star." I got even more pictures up close to see exactly how they achieved this, and I am absolutely going to duplicate this in the future. This was at a Carl's Jr. location in Wilsonville, Oregon. I love unique and original ideas and this is definitely one of my favorites, that I've seen.

Have a nice weekend.
